John Calvin on Fathers Leading Their Family

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at 5:30 AM

“So what is to be noted here is that heads of family must go to the trouble of being instructed in God’s Word if they are to do their duty.  If they are stupid, if they do not know the basic principles of religion or of their faith and do not know God’s commandments or how prayer is to be offered to Him or what the road to salvation is, how will they instruct their families?  All the more, then, must those who are husbands and have a family, a household to govern, think, “I must establish my lesson in His Word so that I will not only try to govern myself in accordance with His will, but that I will also bring to it at the same time those who are under my authority and guidance.””
